25 minutes!

After chickening out of starting W7 on Monday I still wasn't confident enough today, so I started the Zenlabs app W6R3 (22 minutes) and set off. When she said 'you are half way' I carried on running to my usual landmark and then turned around. I don't know what happened but I 'lost' at least 2 songs of my playlist, my breathing evened out and I only had a slight ache in my calves. It was tough on the uphill slope on my last 5 minutes, but when she said 'one minute left' and 'start your cool down' it was on the flat after a downhill slope so I decided to see how far I could get. I managed the whole 25 minutes and almost made it back to the starting point of my run!
